Campaign Move 27 – French retreat to Verona

Move 27 – 1200 4 September 1796

1st and 2nd Austrian divisions halt at Rivoli to regroup

Wurmster is still unaware of the Austrian victory at Rivoli

He orders 3rd and 4th divisions to continue their march towards Verona
At first light Bonaparte continues his retreat towards Verona.

He decides to retreat to Perschia, where there are sufficient artillery to replace his losses at Rivoli

He sends orders to 5th division to hold Verona to cover his retreat

He also sends orders to 6th division to continue their siege of Mantua
